Bucky is getting to the point in his pregnancy where he'll stop shifting with the moon.

(Anonymous) 2016-12-08 03:51 am (UTC)(link)
"What should we name him?" Steve asked, rubbing his hands over Bucky's hairy pregnant belly. His body was lean and skinny in every area except his stomach, which protruded out like a fat round otter. The bulbous orb was beautiful.

"Let's call him Hamilton," the pregnant assassin said, noticing the instant approval in his lover's eyes, which shimmered with desire that only Bucky could read. The birth was next week, and both knew what had to be done before then.

"Go ahead. Break him in."

This one person on my timeline drives me crazy. Every chance they get, they like to shit talk this one show and make fun of everyone who likes it and watches every new episode of it that comes out just to bitch and whine and cry about how shitty it is.

But everything she bitches about literally happens in all of the other shows she's so obsessed about.

Like I know I can just scroll pass her shit, which I usually do, but it's like damn. If this show bothers you this much, why dont you just ignore it? No one is holding a gun to your head demanding you watch this show.

It feels like we all agree that dogpiling and nitpicking new players and new games is what is making this hobby stagnate, and yet every time something new comes along, the dogpiling and nitpicking commences.

(Anonymous) 2016-12-08 04:01 pm (UTC)(link)
1. your feels aren't facts. dogpiling and nitpicking is only a problem when it spreads outside of this comm and the last time that was a real problem was in 2013

2. i've never seen us dogpile or nitpick something or someone that wasn't already shit to begin with. does dwrp need new blood? yes. does it new hideous ij refugees? no.

3. dwrp dying has more to do with the old guard cycling out and fandom shifting to (shudder) tumblr than it does anything the anoncomms do. anoncomms have actually declined rather a great deal and if this hobby survives i fully expect them to go the way of rp secrets in a year or two

4. but why u mad bruh?

why are flight-capable wings such a big deal in most games? i'm talking the ones that allow for body mods via activity rewards and stuff like that. it's especially ridiculous in a game where characters aren't depowered, so characters that can fly in canon don't need to spend ac points or do anything special for them.

disclaimer: i don't really like wings on characters, so this has never applied to me personally, but i've seen it in a handful of games recently and it always catches my eye. in games where you have multicolored aliens and people who can shoot lasers from their eyes, is flying really that game-breaking?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-09 12:10 am (UTC)(link)
in a closed setting like a city or something i guess it gives flight-capable characters an advantage because they could potentially fly out of the setting

but just bullshit something like "if you try to escape your eyes are replaced with chicken hearts" or something idc

One of my main fantasies is sort of a gender inversion fantasy.

I like to pretend I am a blonde,beautiful English/ American girl. A debutante of poise and class, who has been abducted to the harem of some brutish, powerful, but suave Arabian Moslem Sheikh.

I try to preserve my maidenhead, but my girlish lust, and the allure of the harem is far to great for me. I submit to my dark..ravishing prince..

i wonder why race stuff isn't as prevalent here as it is other places where people discuss kink. there's obviously porn, but it's all over f-list, and i've seen it on ij before, too.

or..... is dwrp is full of asian fetishization? there are a lot of anime characters floating around

okay kids, quick guide to something neat about anon, based on every awful thread i've ever had to delete on this hellcomm

anonymity makes people seem more significant. people who are really, really invested in shit that has nothing to do with them take advantage of this to inflate their own presence and obscure the fact that 1) they're the only person on their own side 2) they're spending multiple actual real-life hours on something that well-adjusted people do not do 3) they lack meaningful experience or expertise on a subject. anonymity being the great equalizer lets normies mingle with the greats but it also lets turds pretend they're worth listening to.

it also means that just having an idea exist on the page and be acknowledged lends it power and credibility. when every post is equal to every other post, someone can spam a conversation for multiple hours and make the sheer quantity of their dumbass idea explode. USian anons have seen this principle in action for the past year or so and will probably have the delightful misfortune of watching it develop for the next several.

when people post bullshit, you need to ignore it. the absolute best thing that can happen with bullshit is that it gets deleted, over and over, until the bullshit producer decides that the returns on their investment aren't worth it and leaves.

the absolute worst thing that can happen with bullshit is that it gets replied to, because each reply gives the bullshit producer an opportunity to multiply their bullshit output. it starts growing like the rice pile in the fable of the king and the dude and the chess board and the grains of rice except instead of grains of rice they're turds and everything is shit.

somewhere in the middle is ignoring it.

i know ignoring it isn't ideal. i know bullshit thrives on silence, because when bullshit primes the conversation and is met with silence it gains the advantage of being established and default and the thing that needs to be shoved off the throne. i know wankgate isn't exactly the kind of place where, when you ignore bullshit, you can then go and make your own anti-bullshit top-level content to prime the conversation to your own advantage, just by the nature of what this comm is. i know. it's stupid.

but having watched bullshit unfold many times since being brought on as a mod, i can tell you that ignoring bullshit, while not ideal, is a hell fucking lot better than trying to engage it in good faith. the latter never ends well. i'm not being dramatic or idealistic or tut-tutting from a pristine throne, i'm saying that it just, purely, statistically, never fucking ends well, no matter how good you think your arguments are. save yourself the effort and the caring and the time.

please take this advice to places that aren't wankgate, where getting bullshit deleted is way less possible. let the bullshit stew, sad and alone and unacknowledged. don't give the idea the time of day, no matter how negligent it feels to ignore. leave the bullshit alone and make your own, tidier kinds of shit. like....like.....this analogy is falling apart, i don't know enough about shit

whatever. take care, love y'all, even the people who desperately need to touch grass, but in their case it's more of a stern, disappointed love

over the last several months, honestly leading up to and following the us national election but it existed prior to then, there's just been a deluge of shitposting and trolling and last night and a few days prior was particularly bad. several threads were just nuked in their entirety, and people kept repeatedly trying to stir off-topic political wank.

it seems right now is a good time to have a pretty long talk about how much value wg is really worth to anyone any longer, and whether it's worth it to keep open if this is the only significant content it seems to generate.

Back in the earlier RP anon memes, a lot of legitimate problems came to light because they had been festering for years. Nobody wanted to talk about things unanon except in utmost secrecy; some total shitheels got away with things because there wasn't any way to let the community know about them. There was nasty shit that needed an avenue to get out. For that matter, anon was really the only central community hub LJRP had, so there was some plain ol' talking shop that needed an avenue too. In that regard, comms like this were always inevitable. When you get enough people together, there's gonna be drama and there's gonna be gossip.

Nowadays, anon has stopped being treated as an outlet for things we need to discuss and become a primary source of entertainment on its own. At the same time, there's far, far less real wank to be had, both because DWRP has gotten much smaller and because those festering issues are much harder to come by. We used up all the old ones, after all. It's no wonder the result is toxic: we want drama and wank, which means we want people to do shitty things. We want more more Beccas, more Phases, more Toras, even more Seconds and Kens. We want RP to be full of villains and victims.

Anon moving away from scheduled posts to an always-open format was the worst thing we ever did, IMO. The downtime between posts meant that wank had time to gather steam and develop some really satisfying deets; it also meant that minor dust-ups had time to blow over. Nowadays there's fear of offending the wrong person with something small and getting dragged anon, because everything gets brought to anon immediately. So there ARE no minor issues anymore. We're so desperate for wank that we'll jump on any little crumb hoping it'll turn into the next big explosion.

That said, everyone's used to wg/rpa being an always thing now. It'd be hard to go back; we've pretty clearly shown that this crowd is willing to stay on a crusty old post, stirring up shit, starving and scavenging long after there's nothing left to gain. You'd probably have to freeze comments TBH. And maybe someone else would still try to start up an alternative. Maybe that would even succeed. Maybe not! Who knows.

Whatever, anyway. I agree that the anoncomms in their current state are no longer filling a need, no longer doing more good than bad, and no longer serving the community. I don't think closing one or both down is necessarily the best answer, because, again, there's always going to be some niche for gossip. There are a couple ways more moderation could help but that's a bandaid on a major wound. And honestly, the mods are providing a service on their own time, they get to decide how much work is worth it and when to pull the plug.

Also it really bites that you can't even have positivity on rpa anymore without people shitting it up.
